From the list of election officials
announced for next week's elections
Madison county has the outward as
pect of a democratic county. By law
each of the two leading parties Is en
titled to a judge and a clerk of elec
tion , the third judge going to the ma
jority party , that is the party casting
the largest number of votes In the
precinct at the last general election.
As a result of the democrats having
carried twelve out of the twenty-three
precincts of the county at the 1900
election the minority party In Madison
county still has a little bit the best
of It as regards election officials.
Only one change was made In the
Norfolk polling places this fall. The
outside precinct's voting place has
been changed so that voters In the
precinct will cast their ballots In the
building east of the Oxnurd once occu
pied by the Daniel paper store. The
other polling places will not be chang
ed , the First ward voting at the city
hall , the Second ward at the Wesl
Side hose house , the Third ward In

Pronounced the Best Trotter Devel
oped In West This Year.
The following written for the Horse
man and Spirit of the Times by Per-
rlgo , concerns Shady G , a horse brok
en , trained and developed by John S.
Kay at Nellgh :
Ills two races at Elm Ridge , Kansas
City , Mo. , marked the last public ap
pearance for the year of Shady G , the
best trotter developed In the west this
year. Shady G Is a high class trotter
of the water. He started In ten races ,
won seven , was second In two and
third lu the other , earning $3,400. Ho
Improved rapidly from week to week
and won his last six starts. His rec
ord was taken at Sioux City , lown , In
Ills second win of the meeting. W. P.
McCrenry , Ed Allen and other good
judges tell me Hint he won the heat
In u big Jog and that he could have
stepped In 2 : OS. At Kansas City last
Monday ho raced over a muddy track
and simply tow-roped a high class
Held , which Included Copporlleld ,
Charm P and other mighty good ones ,
Shudy G Is the best trotter lu the
west , according to my way of think
ing , that Is left In the 2:10 : class. Ho
will race all day and then go again
Iho following day. 1 saw him make
his first start of the year at Qulncy ,
111. , in July and trot a field of good
trotters into the ground over a muddy
track. In his next two engagements
ho ran Into the Canadian gelding ,
Johnny , and made him step around
2:13 : each time to win. Then at Wy
oming he met Major K and the pair
went live heats all the way from 2:16 :
to 2:17 : , and Shady G was first or second
end each time. Then came his six
slruight victories.
I fell in love with Shudy G the first
time I ever saw him. " 1 loved him
Ihon , I love him more loday , " as Iho
song has U. He Is the handsomest
red sorrel you ever saw In color , with
a stripe lu his face and three whlto
legs. He retires for the season with
the cleanest set of legs and feet a
horse over had In fact , ho Is abso
lutely sound. Tom Cox , who has
trained and driven him all his life , Is
entitled to a great deal of pralso for
his work. Shady G Is owned by M. H.
